1. The Mysterious Smenkhkare [SIS Internet Digest $]
... original can be made out. Consideration of all four coffinettes (and comparison with the forms attested elsewhere) shows the -aten segment in all cases near the centre. In some cases -re is near the start, and in one case -nefer is immediately adjacent to -aten. Since this last form does not match any of the others, is it possible they were in fact reworked twice? The only two possible orthographic forms starting with re from anywhere near this era are Ramesses (too late) and Smenkhkare. So the cartouche under Tutankhamun appears to be that of "Smenkhkare beloved if Akenaten", an intermediate form between the first two of the variations noted at the start of the talk. This would seem to preclude the idea that Nefertiti took over Smekhkare's name after his early death (yet another theory about the complex relationships involved here...). In summary, the successive changes seem to be: Smenkhkare beloved of Akhenaten Neferneferuaten beloved of Waenre Tutankhamun ruler of southern On The only datable item referring to Neferneferuaten comes from a tomb referring to his ...
2. The Place of Horemheb in Egyptian History [SIS C&C Review $]
... is intended as a postscript to an earlier article on the chronology of the XVIIIth Dynasty [3, examines the evidence for placing Horemheb at the close of this dynasty, rather than lowering his dates by over 100 years on the lines proposed by Dr Velikovsky. The position is complicated by the fact that the king lists which have survived from Dynasty XIX ignore the Amarna pharaohs and name Horemheb as the immediate successor of Thutmose IV and Amenhotep III, with Ramesses I and Seti I following Horemheb [4. Since Akhenaten, Smenkhkare, Tutankhamun and Ay are excluded as "uncanonical", it would be reasonable to assume that the Libyan and Ethiopian kings would similarly be omitted from the Abydos and Saqqara king lists had they intervened. No conclusions can therefore be drawn from their absence from these lists. On the other hand, Horemheb as king assumed the prenomen Djeser-khepru-Re' Setep-en-Re'. The element kheper- the representation of a dung beetle (" scarab")- appears in the prenomen of every Dynasty XVIII ruler from Thutmose I to Ay, except Hatshepsut ( ...
3. Tutankhamun radiocarbon dates [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1996:1 Home¦ Issue Contents NOTES AND QUERIES Tutankhamun radiocarbon dates Q. In the introduction to Peoples of the Sea, Dr I Velikovsky states that in the spring of 1971, the British Museum Library processed reed and seed from the tomb of Tutankhamun. The latter showed the age of -899 and the former of -846. The results were not, apparently, published but I have not read in any journal or publication that the dates were refuted or denied as being other than accurate. It has always puzzled me that no steps have been taken to run a double-blind dating project on artefacts from the days of Tutankhamun and of Ramesses II under the oversight of the British Museum, or any other such august body. After all, it worked for the Turin Shroud and would help to guide all of us in sorting out Manetho's very dubious list once and for all. Perhaps the SIS would consider initiating such a project? Major A J James, Barry, S. Glamorgan A. According to Bernard Newgrosh, ...
4. The Tutankhamun Prophecies, and, The Lost Tomb of Viracocha, by Maurice Cotterell (Reviewed) [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents The Tutankhamun Prophecies by Maurice Cotterell Hodder Headline, London, 1999, £18 99 The Lost Tomb of Viracocha Headline, London 2001, £18 99 Reviewed by Alasdair Beal Maurice Cotterell is an engineer who worked out a theory to explain the Sun' s cycles of behaviour while at Cranfield University in the 1980s and his ideas on this are outlined in an appendix to The Tutankhamun Prophecies. (This amounts to about a quarter of the book.) In Cotterell's model, the differential rotation rates of the Sun's equator and poles lead to 12 different monthly bursts of radiation through the year and also the sunspot cycle. He links this to human fertility, the rise and fall of civilisations, schizophrenia, biorhythms, cancers, miscarriages, catastrophe cycles, Chinese Astrology, the human gestation period, planetary influences on human personality and the behaviour of the honeybee. Cotterell calls this the 'superscience of the sun' and he claims that this was the big secret of ...
5. Radiocarbon Dates for the Eighteenth Dynasty [SIS C&C Review $]
... 1), and makes very disconcerting reading. When Velikovsky began his campaign hardly any C14 results from Egyptian material of the New Kingdom- the period affected by his revised chronology- had been published. Yet the replies he received from the various Museum authorities he approached for further tests (and full publication of the results) displayed a degree of faith in the accepted, Sothic based, Egyptian chronology that bordered on utter complacency. In 1964 Velikovsky did succeed in securing the test of a mixed sample of wood from the tomb of Tutankhamun (P. 726). The result given was 1030 50 b.c., which. corrected by the Suess calibration to c. 1250-1350 B.C., falls just within the range of the conventional date for Tutankhamun's death. However. as Velikovsky (2) and Burgstahler (3) have pointed out, the result from cedarwood (which composed just under half the sample), a slow-growing tree which may be matured for long periods of time before use, would be expected to predate the tomb by anything up to several ...
6. Review: Act of God, by Graham Phillips [SIS C&C Review $]
... :1 (Jul 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Act of God by Graham Phillips Sidgwick& Jackson, 1998, paperback, £5.99 John Crowe 'Act of God' is one of a spate of books by New Age Egyptologists over the last few years. When Michael Reade first kindly lent me the book I must admit to groaning inwardly, as I found both its appearance and presentation a bit off-putting. The front cover carries an eye-catching but otherwise irrelevant picture of the Khafre Pyramid, along with the 'grab' words God, Tutankhamun, Moses and Atlantis. This clever if obvious contrivance shows that the Author, a media studies lecturer, certainly knows his subject- but does he know anything about Egyptology? In the typically 'New Age' notes on the back cover, Graham Phillips says this is a real-life historical detective story, which is his special area of expertise. He therefore claims to be well qualified to tackle one of the best known problems in Egyptology, the mystery of tomb KV55 in the Valley of the Kings. Since a convincing explanation for ...
7. A Chronology for the Eighteenth Dynasty [SIS C&C Review $]
... 17th year was his last (a wine docket belonging to "the estate of Smenkhkare deceased" has the year 17 crossed out and substituted by the year 1 (7)), but no such certainty exists in respect of other reigns of this period. The position is complicated by the vexed question of co-regencies. The 20-year co-regency of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III is beyond dispute but there has not been general agreement about the evidence for co-regencies between Thutmose III and Amenhotep II, Amenhotep III and Akhnaton, Akhnaton and Smenkhkare, and Tutankhamun and Ay. The most contentious is that postulated between Amenhotep III and Akhnaton, which lasted between 8 and 11 years. That between Akhnaton and Smenkhkare is less controversial, although it is not clear for how long the latter survived his father-in-law, if at all. since Thutmose III died four months after his son's succession date (8), his co-regency with Amenhotep II must have tasted x years+ four months, but the quantity of x remains unknown. Evidence for a co-regency between Tutankhamun and Ay has been adduced by ...
8. Key figures of the Amarna period [SIS Internet Digest $]
... own right. Nefernefrure A daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, and possibly the same indidual as Nefernefruaten. Nefernefruaten A daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, and possibly the same indidual as Nefernefrure. Meritaten A daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, and later possibly married to Smenkhkare- if the latter was a man. If Smenkhkare was a woman, the two may have been coregents. Ankhsenpaaten A daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, and possibly the same individual as Ankhesnamun. Ankhesnamun Probably the same individual as Ankhsenpaaten, she was the young wife of Tutankhamun. She may have been the author of a letter to the Hittite ruler Suppiluliumas seeking the hand of his son Zannanza in marriage after the death of her husband. This plan failed with the untimely death of Zannanza while en route to Egypt. It is probable that she was made to marry Ay, probably to legitimise his rule, but at this point she fades from the view of historical records so far found. Maketaten A daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. Stepenre A daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. Smenkhkare Perhaps the most ...
9. The Amarna Royal Tombs Project - the last 3 seasons [SIS Internet Digest $]
... furniture and equipment was much larger than previously thought, perhaps up to 80% of the whole, and probably including the well-known gold face mask. This reuse was necessitated by his early death, before real preparations had been made. This led to a real problem for Ay to be able to give a proper send-off. By chance, Tutankhamun's death coincided with an already planned transfer of bodies from the Amarna burial area to the Valley of the Kings- so grave material was available. After material was taken from the collection for Tutankhamun, the remainder was redivided among the Amarna royal dead, and the bodies were reinterred in or near KV55. Nicholas' belief was that the KV55 coffin was originally intended for Kiya (Akhenaten's 2nd, disgraced, wife) and was adapted for Akhenaten. There is also evidence of material for Queen Tiye. There was no evidence for either wife of Akhenaten- Nefertiti or Kiya- which was surprising as both had (posthumously) donated items to Tutankhamun. Therefore it was reasonable that at least one more tomb of the Amarna ...
10. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... 20, 1963 Translated from the German Dear Dr. Velikovsky, This morning we got back safely, and first on the list will be to write to you, for you will certainly have been waiting eagerly for news. To enter straightway medias in res-a C-14 test can be made in Philadelphia! To be sure. for reasons presently to be explained I failed to get something from the period you mentioned, but got something instead from an absolutely sure source in a reign after your key-figure Hatshepsut, namely, from the tomb of Tutankhamun. And now a short chronological report. After failing to meet Dr. Zaki Iskander at first, because he had always just left the place where he was supposed to be, I was able to sec him the day before last in Cairo itself. He was exceedingly pleasant. Prof. Malik ? s letters from Princeton must have opened all the doors, for from the start I perceived his readiness to give me something. We talked at length about the mummy of Ramesses III, about the mummies of officials of his ...
